I stayed here with my daughters for a quick weekend getaway. The theme of this building it wonderful The detail is true Disney fashion. There is a scent once you walk into the building that was extremely overpowering and my daughter had to hold her nose once coming through the door because it was causing issues the second we come into the building until we were in our room. We stayed in a one bedroom villa which was quite outdated. Over all we could not spend a lot of time inside but we enjoyed the pool and the entire resort.

I stayed here for a weekend with friends. The Wilderness Lodge is one of my favorite resorts on Walt Disney World property because of the theme and the landscaping. Boulder Ridge Villas is immediately adjacent to the main building and very convenient to Disney transportation, the restaurants and shop. The Villa pool is very relaxing and well kept. As a Disney history buff and fan of Walt Disney, I loved seeing the artifacts and artwork in the Carolwood Pacific Room. We stayed in a Deluxe Studio. Although the studio needed updating, it was very clean and everything worked. I would definitely stay here again.

First time staying at Wilderness Lodge, Boulder ridge villas. Great experience. Location is amazing. Feels like you are staying in a forest, yet so close to Disney. Rooms: Comfortable beds, beautiful view. The shower only gets luke warm if you are showering at popular times. So time accordingly. Amenities: pool is fun. Slide is short but fun and well themed. Arcade was closed while we were here. Transportation: Buses were 10-15 minute rides to parks. Boat to MK just as fast. Cast members who operates the transport from WL were amazing and went above and beyond. One even stopped the bus and waited for us after a late Epcot night and saved my daughter from a melt down. Food: while I am not a fan of mobile ordering, there were lots of food choices at WL. Loved the chocolate croissant and wilderness bark coffee from roaring fork. This may be my new favorite resort. Caribbean beach is still one of my favorites, but WL is close competition.

We were fortunate enough to be in Florida for a 2 weeks vacation at our family house in St. Petersburg. My brother in law had expiring DVC points and offered to let us use them for one night. We had a wonderful time at the resort. The pool was enjoyable and the room was wonderful. I looked to see if the the room had laundry and wished I had known that it did. Could have used it since our house does not. lol! My only complaint was the reliance on the app for everything. We were able to get a dinner reservation at 9:50pm at the Polynesian and tried to change to something earlier and in our hotel. My husband’s biggest complaint was having to drive to dinner because the resort transportation does not run late enough to bring us back after dinner. It ended up being fine but since we had never been there we were unsure if it would be an issue. My feeling is that I should not have to call an Uber on property when we are eating on property. It was a nice resort. Rooms was comparable to our Hilton Grand Vacation rooms.

I'm thrilled that your family had an opportunity to experience this beautiful Resort, Diane! You shared some wonderful photos that really showcase the amazing rustic feel of this property. I certainly do understand your husband's frustrations with the transportation options for a late dinner. Our transportation actually runs based on the operating hours of the Theme Park... or Disney Springs, if you're visiting that location. So this may impact your options if you're looking to return to your Resort after some of the Theme Parks have closed. I do apologize for any disappointment this caused for your husband. I appreciate you taking a moment to share your review, Diane, and I hope you'll have an opportunity to stay with us again. Quinn Disney Social Reviews

We have stayed in lots of DVC units. Some are a little older some are newer. This is definitely older. That being said it was well maintained and very clean. As an older couple I prefered this location to Saratoga Springs or Old Key West as it is smaller so it it is easier to get around. Also I feel like the size of the pool is appropriate for the number of units. It is also quieter than the Boardwalk which we liked as well. For us it was perfect. We had a one bedroom that was well equipped. The unit was clean and all the appliances seemed newer and in well working order. The rest of the kitchen items were in pristine condition. We would stay here again.

Thanks so much, Tim and Lori! I'm delighted that the two of you had such a wonderful stay with us. You're absolutely correct that this location is much smaller than some of our other properties, and being in this glorious rustic lodge that feels like it's in the midst of the wilderness makes for such a calm and relaxing escape. I'm so happy this Resort worked out perfectly for you, and we can't wait to welcome you back home again! Quinn Disney Social Reviews
